i agree, but not completely....a house is a thing made of wood and stone....a home is the people and memories that are made in a house.
houses can be lost in many ways that are beyond your control...they can be built again & again. i would never kill anyone over a house....i would definitely kill someone for the life and safety of myself & the people who make my house a home. the issue is, you can not distinguish when someone is coming in your home uninvited...i'd hate to kill someone cause they were just looking to steal a material object....yet, there is no way i can know if that was their intention, or harming someone i love is their intention. i wouldn't ask to find out if they are entering my home with loved ones present.
it would be a very different situation if i drove up to my house and noticed it had been broken into (or saw someone breaking into the house or another car)...nothing to kill or die over in this scenario imo. just drive away and call the police to check the house.
i just want my loved ones safe, they are what can't be replaced. and i will make the most passive decision possible to keep their safety intact....if being passive isn't an option....well, that is why we are firearm owners imo. absolute last resort to protect what really counts.
