The Constitution of the United States contains a way to amend it without going through Congress. It's contained in Article V. 

If 3/4 of the legislatures of the States agree, a convention may be called to propose amendments. Any Amendment drafted must then pass muster and be ratified by 3/4 of the States. It's a way to bring an out of control government to heel without the need for an armed revolt. 

This Convention has been called a "Constitutional Convention" by politicians who are terrified that We the People might want to clip their wings. I had a fucking "progressive" dweeb in my cab the other day and we discussed Article V. The blowhole actually wagged his finger in my face as if I were a child reaching for the cookie jar and said: "What if you wind up losing your precious Second Amendment? You could wind up with a runaway convention!"

I repeat: ANY AMENDMENT ADOPTED MUST BE RATIFIED BY 3/4 OF THE STATES!!! THERE WILL BE NO FUCKING RUNAWAY CONVENTION!. What's more likely is that U.S. Senators will be chosen by the State legislature and be subject to recall by the legislature AS WAS ORIGINALLY INTENDED BY THE FRAMERS in order to give control of the Federal government back to the STATES and not to a bunch of bureaucrats and politicians in Washington. 

What's more likely is that the role of the Supreme Court will be more clearly defined and that it will be made clear that the Court is NOT an un-elected "super legislature". Term limits and the ability of 2/3 of the state legislatures to overturn any judgment of the Court will rein in the idiotic stretches pronounced by the Court concerning the Commerce clause and the "Takings" clause. 

And what's more likely, you ASP blowhole, is that it will be made clear that "Arms" are anything up to and including that which is carried by a modern light infantryman - which means a fully automatic select-fire true assault rifle. (grenades, bazookas, mines, and nuclear weapons are not "arms" they are ordnance, for all you idiots out there.)

Radio host Mark "The Great One" Levin has written a book called "The Liberty Amendments" Get it, read it, and then get busy writing and/or e-mailing your Governor and State legislators.
