Here, I'll help you out too.

Here are all the US Code sections that are in Title 18 and have to do with mail and mail property:

Theft, destruction, mailing firearms, falsification, obstruction of mail, etc are all covered. Those are exactly what you're talking about with the burglarizing of the USPS facility.

Now, show me where any of that has anything to do with carrying a firearm on USPS property, please.
