Jason Bagley was home with his two young daughters when he heard someone inside his home. In an effort to protect his children, Bagley grabbed his Glock 19 and confronted the two intruders, who had already begun to ransack the home. Bagley fired four rounds causing the intruders to flee through the back door. They managed to get away with a cell phone and two MacBooks. "You can't replace my kids," Bagley said. "All I was thinking about was my kids' protection." (WSB-TV, South Fulton County, Ga., 3/8/14)
