Your assessment seems very plausible. And don't forget that

when people speak of such an event, they erroneously conclude it would happen instantly nationwide.

In all likelihood, this would be a slow process. After all, there just isn't the manpower to accomplish this logistically in any reasonable time frame.

This time-lag will be what allows the fires of revolution to be inflamed.

And not only will you see individuals and activity duty units side with the People, but entire State governments as well. It may start as a People vs. D.C. fight, but it will end as a full-on civil war between independent states. And it won't be limited to mere small arms, or even tanks and mortars. Choppers, planes, ships, satellites and even nukes (as a deterrent) will be in play. Things will get ugly real fast.
