Last time I checked if you were a firearms owner in Canada they do not require a warrant to search your premises . Sections 102-105 of the Firearms Act

So I guess this Lawyer & firearms specialist doesn't know the law?

“This is without precedent, this is unreasonable search and seizure,” said Ed Burlew, lawyer and firearms specialist in Ontario. “The entry was illegal, it’s against the charter, it was unreasonable search and seizure. There’s no judge that would uphold the evidence obtained through an illegal entry into a person’s home.”

The first sections (102-3) refer to gun dealers.

Then 104 says:
104. (1) An inspector may not enter a dwelling-house under section 102 except
(a) on reasonable notice to the owner or occupant, except where a business is being carried on in the dwelling-house; and
(b) with the consent of the occupant or under a warrant.

It goes on to specify exactly where an inspection may be made - what rooms and such.

105 is to do with *inspecting* a firearm to check serial numbers, whether it is a “restricted weapon” (not only handguns but certain long guns like my old M14 which I had to leave behind years ago. {sigh})

NOTE: the entire section is to do with inspection - nothing at all about seizure or confiscation.

NOTE ALSO: (3) In carrying out an inspection of a place under subsection (1), an inspector may not use force.
