"No duty to retreat" (or "stand your ground") laws in no way authorize the use of any level of force to protect property.

If you are prevented from exercising your rights, you have no right to liberty.
"Stand your ground" laws do not establish any "right" to use public property.

I'm pretty certain the wording I was taught in junior high was, "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." I do not recall any mention of property. And I believe that phrase was in the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.
