Not necessarily. There was a guy here in Montreal a couple of years back who actually shot and killed a police officer when they staged a full-bore raid on his house, including kicking down doors and all. Cops did not properly announce themselves and he grabbed a pistol and shot one of them (maybe two?) and they got him too, although not fatally.
He walked on the shooting because it was ruled a justifiable self-defense action when faced with what he essentially thought was an armed home invasion with his wife and children at risk.
Worst part was they did not find any evidence of whatever crime it was they were originally raiding his house for. He got hit with some illegal gun charges (because he had some unregistered firearms as well as the registered ones on the premises) but nothing big.
I used to play darts with him at a bar near my old place, he was a nice guy.
