Serious corruption? Why?

I guess it depends on your definition of "corruption." To me, the word "corruption" carries a connotation of a public official using his/her public office for some sort of private gain. Suppose, in the case of federal background checks, nobody involved is out to put any money (or other tangible or intangible assets) in their pocket, but they just think that the .gov "should have" a more permanent record of who is buying guns. So they just don't bother to destroy all those records that are supposed to be deleted after ___ days.

Personally, I would not be at all surprised if that's what is happening, but I don't think I would ascribe it to "corruption." I'm more inclined to ascribe it to ideology.
