BUT it does say "or (2) such person is armed with explosives or a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument".

So what I read is that even if they're not after you, as long as they have a deadly or even "dangerous" weapon, it's considered home invasion.

Now, what the hell is considered "dangerous"? A sharp pencil? A dull knife? Couldn't just about anything be dangerous if used right?
Yup. And the VAST majority of burglars have a pry-bar, full-on crowbar, hammer, heavy screwdriver or the like. Very few burglars know what to do with a lock-pick set which is about the only such tool that probably doesn't qualify as "dangerous instrument".

Any of the rest turn it into a home invasion.
