George Soros and Second Amendment subversion by the National League of Cities and the Municipal League?
The National League of Cities is well known for their role on bringing socialist planning techniques to our communities. This organization has been working alongside of ICLEI since the 90’s to inject the principles of the UN’s Agenda for the 21st Century into government policy on the local level.
The United States campaign was introduced in November 1994 at the annual conference of the National League of Cities. Eight months later, the local councils of 15 cities had agreed to the campaign commitments.
