Amy Poehler pissed NRA used 'Parks and Rec' image

Twitter  NRA

CNN held a town hall with the students of Parkland, Florida-who are turning the tragedy they lived through into action for change-and their parents, where they spoke with Florida Senator (and NRA donation recipient) Marco Rubio about gun control.

Meanwhile, the NRA is using this time to use light-hearted memes and gifs to congratulate their chosen defender Dana Loesch for speaking out about how Americans should be able to carry a firearm.

That'll teach them not to mess with Leslie Knope. Creator Michael Shur tweeted: "Hi, please take this down".

Amy Poehler does not have Twitter, but she sent the following message for Schur to share with his followers: "Can you tweet the NRA for me and tell them I said fuck off?".

It read "thank you for being the voice of over 5 Million #NRA members".

The NRA apparently isn't listening to the "Parks and Rec" team as the Leslie Knope meme is still up on Twitter as of Thursday morning.

"Hi, please take this down". Schur's response has racked up 150,000 likes and 40,000 retweets.

Another actor from the show, Adam Scott, also lambasted the NRA, telling the organization to stay "away from Leslie Knope".

Nick Offerman, who plays the lovably stiff libertarian Ron Swanson, had a harsher message for the influential organization.

Activist and Parkland shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez tweeted her own Parks and Rec GIF late Wednesday, this one lining up in agreement with former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Schur wasn't the only person to tweet his displeasure at the NRA.
