What on Earth is the World coming to when people are getting arrested for possession of guns in ancient and protected Alms Houses provided for the Retires Bakers who use to work in The Bakers Arms making breads?

These are listed properties and were once only occupied by Bakers in their ripe old age for a bit of peace and quiet and now they seem to have been taken over by the Crooks and Vagabonds of Society.
