The Missouri legislature considers a bill which would require all law-abiding citizens between the ages of 18 and 35 to own an AR-15 assault rifle. If the bill passes, it gives them one year to procure one.

Yeah, that doesn't make sense to me. Especially requiring a specific consumer model. I'd go for a Swiss-style mandatory militia training and optional post-training service weapon purchase before that. If strengthening the national guard reserve capacity is the intended goal, that is.

I don't blame them, GDPR is the cookie directive on steroids. I fucking hate all the dialogue spam both have generated.

Well, if you prefer doing a page to kick out users that are protect by the directive instead of adding a way to respect it (which is just asking user or "nightmare" not using intrusive cookie).
I must say i find it all ok that they kick me, my point was to question yourself about what they are doing to visitor not protect by this ; i don't think that in 2019 a dev is unable to make a browsable website without cookie :)

GDPR doesn't protect people from intrusive cookies, only disabling 3rd party cookies in your browser will do that. GDPR only exists to annoy people with yet more dialogue spam. I doubt it's an issue with whether the website can comply with GDPR, and more one of whether they should waste their time on complying with technology legislation written by a load of feckless boomers.

I don't know why sites outside of the EU go through the trouble of enforcing GDPR. The EU has no jurisdiction to enforce any law outside of it's borders unless the owner of the site has a presence inside the EU which I doubt a TV station in Missouri does.

GDPR? I thought that was East Germany (German Demokratic People's Republik) or Stasi or something related.

What kind of censorhip shit is this? Oooh, we can't have the proles knowing that some people are allowed to have grown-up guns and they like it!

Exactly. It's braindead legislation written by some mindless tool.

yes the Swiss model seems to be most reasonable. This is more a lobbyist work to push sales.
