Mental incompetence is the inability of a person to make or carry out important decisions regarding his or her affairs. An individual is defined as mentally incompetent if h/she is manifestly psychotic or otherwise of unsound mind, either consistently or sporadically, by reason of mental defect. Mental incompetence is determined by medical psychiatric professionals and a fiduciary, which is a court-appointed position, would generally not be appointed for them without multiple examinations and opinions that they are not competent. This determination of mental incompetence includes a diagnosis of psychosis of some form which negatively impacts judgement to a significant degree. The impaired judgement in these cases warrants limiting access to firearms. The process as it exists is both fair and necessary.
