"120" is computer hacker speak for the common chatroom term "LOL!" which often stands for "Laughing Out Loud!"

We examine the "LOL" and the "!" separately:

In the 'hacker language' known as 1337, the letters "LOL" are translated as "101"
This is because Ls resemble ones and Os resemble zeros.

The number "101" is the binary equivalent of the decimal number "5"
This is because 1(x1) + 0(x2) + 1(x4) = 5

If you take this 5 and follow it by "!" (as in the original term LOL!) that gives you 5!

5! is the mathematical representation for "5 factorial," the calculated value of which is 120

Therefore, LOL! = 101! = 5! = 120
In a chatroom...

AverageJoe: "The explanation for why 120 means LOL! makes my brain hurt LOL!"
HackerJoe: "Not mine 120"

As explained and summarily down-thumbed in the entry for 120 (don't you love the editorial power of inifinite monkeys?), "120" is a numerical acronym symbolizing religion, with specific reference to peace of mind acquired through respect of a diety but conspicuously without awknowledgement of any particular sect.

120's, therefore, are any quantity of religious nouns, and are highly contextual. The term is commonly used to reference religious lessons, religions texts and spiritual moments. Furthermore, among faiths which engage in ritualistic cannibus consumption as a means of altering perception, 120's may refer to marijuana cigarettes.

It has nothing to do with guns.
From a sketch on disc 2 of "Wu-Tang Forever:"

"Yo, I'm studying 120's right now. Call me back at the god hour."
