Prisoner injures guards ...

A recurring phrase from the pro-gun side has been: "if guns are to blame for violence, why aren't prisons the most peacefull places on earth?"

Today, the implication that prisons (jails, detention facillities, ...) can in fact be gruesomely violent places was proven true as two prison guards were shipped off to the hospital after an inmate injured them with a home-made weapon.

Even in such a controlled place, criminals manage to come up with weapons that can seriously injure or even kill people, and they have no regard for authority or human life.
