Yes, this is far fetched.... Most major cities are blue and there by not usually stockpiling weapons and ammo. Some cities, like NY would be vary easy to over run and take control of as you pointed out. Even still, i believe you vastly under estimate the power of numbers. A mob of few hundred thousand to a million hungry and angry citizens can have a significant impact on a situation. What do you think the army would send to secure a utility station? A platoon? Maybe a company of men? So maybe 100-200 personnel. You don't think a group of 50,000 even 20,000 people who are starving and pissed off with nothing to lose couldn't overrun their position?
Coming back from the far fetched... you continue to revert back to the scenario of the government making an "attack" on the citizens. This will not happen, ever, while the American public is armed. With an unarmed public there is no need for any type of an attack. They could simply change the laws to suit their agenda and enforce them at will.
