I don't know about that. I always feel like in that kind of scenario the gangs would have a severe advantage. They're already organized, have plenty of weapons and ammo, and would not hesitate to commit violent acts to take what they needed from others, especially since there would no longer be any law enforcement to worry about. The good people would get overrun, and the competing gangs would set up their territories before moving on to find more supplies.
