The Convention Of States

What does it really mean to have a Convention Of The States?

A convention to propose amendments to the United States Constitution, also called an Article V Convention, amendatory convention, or a convention of states, applied for by two-thirds (currently 34) of the state legislatures, is one of two processes authorized by Article Five of the United States Constitution whereby the United States Constitution may be altered. Amendments may also be proposed by Congress with a two-thirds vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.[1]
