          Article V says
          The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case...
          Here's our Wex article for Constitutional Amendment:

          The National Archives also provide information on how to amend the Constitution:

          It looks like a constitutional convention is required only when the proposed Amendment doesn't originate in one of the Congressional chambers with the requisite support for the proposal. Indicators that there are two ways are the "or" taken together with " either case..."

                I'm not following you, and so I don't know if there is a question in there for which I can provide you with any more information.

                "Regulate," "regulating," and "regulations" are proper terms of art in the law. They, more often than not, refer to actions of Executive branches, on both the federal and state levels. See this Wex article:

                Going back to the subject line "right to regulate amendments" therefore does not compute, which is why I gave you information about amending the constitution. "Amendments" are also proper terms of art in the law. They refer to changes made to statutes (see:, or the additions to the U.S. Constitution (see:, of which there are 27, and not 2.

                This PDF, from the USCIS, provides a primer on the U.S. Constitution and its Amendments and the role Congress plays:

                  i am saying that laws to regulate guns are unconstitutional there is right to bear arms not regulate what arms that i can bear or how I can bear why a the laws on guns?

                    Thanks, Richard, for clarifying your question. Laws and regulations dealing with guns are not necessarily unconstitutional unless declared so by a court of law. See our Wex article on the Separation of Powers, which says
                    For example, Congress has the power to create laws, the President has the power to veto them, and the Supreme Court may declare laws unconstitutional.
                    While the Constitution enumerates certain rights, it also, creates a system of checks and balances which does not restrict legislatures from passing legislation (in fact, it affirmatively gives Congress the power to pass laws). Some of those laws give agencies to power to create regulations. The constitution also gives the President the power to veto any legislation. All three branches of government must respect constitutional rights, and so governments must find ways to balance those rights with any public health and safety concerns they deem viable.
