None of the news on this said anything about gun confiscation. In fact law enforcement conducts warrent sweeps on a regular basis. that the FBI was involved indicates that they could have been seeking those wanted on federal charges. that SWAT was involved indicates that they were seeking people whom are known to be armed and dangerous.
Lets not jump to the conclussion that they are doing sweeping gun confiscation of law abiding citizens just yet.

SWAT teams have been executing ordinary warrants for years. They long ago oozed beyond just dangerous people. Police departments all over the country have SWAT teams sitting around with nothing to do because the actual situations pretexted for their creation rarely occur. Can't have them sitting around doing nothing, so they get sent on non-dangerous warrants.
An optometrist in Northern VA was shot and killed by such a SWAT team back in early 2006. It took the family five years of litigation to get a settlement from the county. The family was finally able to prove with an excellent forensic video that the shot that killed their son could not possibly have happened the way the police claimed it did. When the video was shown to government, as in "this is what we are going to show the jury", the government decided to settle.

I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.
If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?
There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
