If they are then conservation of momentum applies to gas.

Of course I would agree! 
Certainly "conservation of momentum applies to gas" and, hardly a "gas" law, but gasses have mass and all physical laws apply to them in exactly the same way they do to solids and liquids.

A law being space invariant means the law will be the same where ever you are. If gas laws lack space invariance, then empirical evidence doesn't work, and the gas laws will be different depending on your location.
Look up Noether's theorem.
