A constitutional convention is the most dangerous route to take.
Anything can happen there.
The entire constitution re-written or done away with.
We could end up a monarchy ... it would depend on who had the guns during the decision-making.
It sounds good but it will be like juggling hand grenades with no pins.
We would be better off using the current constitution to remove the current congress, court and executive using a consortium of county sheriff’s.
The County sheriff is the highest law enforcement in the state (power over the governor and attorney general) ... any county sheriff can remove one or more bad apples.
A collection of sheriff’s from each state working together would have legal power to remove the corrupt bunch we have allowed to grow there in DC (and it could be done peaceably).
(I am not sure how likely the peaceably part is but it would be legal).

This is true, but nothing that happens there can have any consequence without the ratification of 3/4th or in the case of a new constitution every state that is to be apart.
To be frank I feel a lot more uneasy about Washington Politicians in Congress proposing amendments. They almost always seem to want primarily more power for themselves in Washington.
“The entire constitution re-written or done away with.”
In either case it would be an excellent opportunty for the more virtuous southern & western States to get way from Statist New England, and irresponsible California.
If you mean Gun’s you will find most of them in OUR not THEIR hands. I’m not sure what other kind of Gun’s your talking about. Our States outnumber theirs, in a form in which we are equals we have the uperhand.

Nothing can be finally passed into law until sufficient states ratify it. And with the large number of states passing various laws to refute ObamaCare, this demonstrates their temperament as to any Convention. Let me point out once again that the number of states that have weighed against ObamaCare is almost as many as are required to call for a Convention.
ObamaCare is ALREADY law unless struck down by the Supreme Court or rendered moot by being defunded by the House. ObamaCare DOES NOW destroy the enumerated powers for it is certain that once government gets comfortable ordering you to buy this insurance, it is only a matter of time before they order you to buy something else. And as the IJ amicus brief states, by logic, that police power will eventually extend to ordering wages and employment. In short ObamaCare is the direct road to SOCIALISM. In my mind this is a far greater threat than a Convention passing some provision that could not survive ratification by sufficient states.
