I'm a little confused on the distinction you're making.  Today, ARIN can remove whois data/reverse delegations as a way of enforcing 'regulations'.  In the future, assuming RPKI is deployed, ARIN could, in theory, revoke the certification of a resource.  While not a gun, these are means of coercion.  Are you being literal when you say "gun" or figurative?
