The dwelling house excluded by the Firearms Act is now covered in Bill C-36 as noted above.
They still can't just walk in. There has to have been a crime committed first, they have to believe the perpetrator or evidence of said crime is inside.
They can't walk in because Mrs. Wilson saw you cleaning your .308 (or god forbid a freaking toy), then turn around and get a warrant to kick in your door because you wouldn't grant them entry... can they?
"War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Numenor, and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise." - J.R.R. Tolkien
