Forty-nine states have applied for an Article V Convention (what is often called a "Constitutional Convention"), submitting more 700 applications. Article V does not permit the calling of a "constitutional convention" only a "convention for proposing amendments."

If you mean for a constitutional convention to propose amendments(s) to the Constitution, 2/3 of the state legislatures. As there are 50 states, 33 would be needed for the convention to be called.

How many states are calling for a constitutional convention now?

According to this article, 32. Two more would be needed. But why call a convention when the amendment process is available and has frequently been used? This question should make all Americans suspicious of such a convention. Certain factions in this country have and are working to implement changes by going around the legislative process. It's been done for years through judicial activism. A Con Con would be a similar avenue. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=83364
