12. The 2nd Amendment, ratified in 1787, refers to the National Guard, which was created 130 years later, in 1917.
The US Supreme Court rejected this interpretation in DC v. Heller.

As worded, it also makes little sense. Why specify language in an Amendment (important enough to need to add) when the entity it referred to wouldn't exist for more than a century?
