In short, the PLLF will inspire such draconian laws as are now applied to banjos.
No, those laws were put into effect for accordions after Lawrence Welk single-handedly destroyed the social lives of 45 percent of adolescents in the US back in the 1950s and 1960s, when their parents forced them to learn to play the accordion just like him.
But I've been working hard to reverse that trend, rather insidiously if I do say so myself. A little semi-nakedness along with clever product placement can accomplish the near-impossible.
