The NRA is not welcome in Pawnee.
Amy Poehler — with a little help from “Parks and Recreation” creator Michael Schur — slammed the National Rifle Association on Wednesday night for using a GIF from their show to support Dana Loesch, the spokeswoman for the organization, following her appearance at a town hall in Parkland, FL.
After the NRA posted their GIF, Schur responded harshly, “Hi, please take this down. I would prefer you not use a GIF from a show I worked on to promote your pro-slaughter agenda.”
He then added, “Also, Amy isn’t on twitter, but she texted me a message: ‘Can you tweet the NRA for me and tell them I said f**k off?'”

Hi, please take this down. I would prefer you not use a GIF from a show I worked on to promote your pro-slaughter agenda.
Also, Amy isn't on twitter, but she texted me a message: "Can you tweet the NRA for me and tell them I said fuck off?" https://t.co/YXSdzCdvdd

Nick Offerman, who also starred on the show, joined in, tweeting, “.@NRA @DLoesch our good-hearted show and especially our Leslie Knope represent the opposite of your pro-slaughter agenda – take it down and also please eat shit. 🇺🇸”
