The good people would get overrun, and the competing gangs would set up their territories before moving on to find more supplies.

Not so sure about that. There are at crap ton more of law abiding citizens who are packing guns and ammo than gangs. In society, gangs run largely unchecked due to lower number of police. Add the law abiding citizens who are packing heat to the disbanded police and military and the relatively low numbers of gangs would be put down in short order. Remember the lawless aren't used to people fighting back.

Plus, you'll likely find that gangs will be placing high value on very different things like TVs, electronics, etc... rather than food, water, fuel, etc... Just my $.02
