But the people placed on the purchase-prohibited list ARE INDEED either criminally guilty (not law-abiding) or certifiably mentally incompetent (not sane). It's in their histories - not their futures; their pasts. Law-abiding and sane adults are not placed on such a list; it isn't designed for their inclusion, and their 2nd amendment rights are consequently not infringed.
