I would use a weapon to defend my property
Reasons To Disagree
Property may be replaced, lives cannot. To defend ones property with lethal force implies a heavy attachment, and that is not the Jedi way. That is a path to the dark side.

Reasons To Agree
My state is one with Castle Doctrine. Defending ones property is not necessarily about the property- its about personal safety. If the culprit feels they can get in without consequence, they are more likely to do it again. Standing ones ground is then a means to deter the individual from a future intrusion which may or may not lead to something more sinister. However, the methodology of Shouting that you have a gun, and giving reasonable time for the person to leave, before pulling the trigger, should be the advised practice.

Because it is not the property you are defending it is the people on the property you are defending. If it is possible to do so warning of intent to protect property and self should be given.

As a last resort and only if they are not deterred by myself trying to convince them to cease their wrong doing on my property.

Reasons for Remain Neutral
In the U.S. this depends on state law. In some states you may, in others, You may not defend property, only life. I only draw to defend life. If they want to hurt the property, they can be arrested. Did I mention I have been a cop?
Property can be regained. A life cannot.
