Now if you're pointing a "firearm" at people Police can believe the public is in danger so that gives Police the right to enter your home without a warrant.
The Police will need a warrant to search your home (although they can still search only with their eyes while conducting their duties).
Just like that LEGO Gun in Toronto where someone called police because they saw a guy holding a gun in the window, they knocked on the door, not stormed in.
