Article V of the Constitution

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 [currently 34], shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States [currently 38], or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress ...

Basically, enough states can get together and say go fuck yourself, DC, what you’re doing is now explicitly illegal and any law contrary to these amendments are now void. Of course, everything is on the table so it all depends on what states wanted the convention to begin with...
