Parks and Rec take on America's gun lobby

Giggle At The NRA Getting Pounded By The ‘Parks And Rec’ Crew On Twitter

The NRA used a meme of Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope to say thank you to spokesperson Dana Loesch after she participated in a CNN forum with some of the student survivors of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting.

Schur, using his Twitter handle @KenTremendous, wrote: "Hi, please take this down".

You really have to do something despicable for the cast and creators of a show to come after you for using a GIF.

While Poehler doesn't have a Twitter account, she communicated a message that was loud and clear via Michael Schur, the show's creator.

Schur was soon joined by some of Poeher's cast mates on the show, also asking the NRA to delete the tweet. But if you're a "Parks and Rec" fan, you can treat yo self to the debate raging in the tweet replies.

Warriors planning 2018 preseason game versus Kings in Seattle
At this point, the paperwork for the October NBA preseason game has not been finalized, but it is being reported as a formality. In 2013, the team was almost sold to a group that would have moved the franchise from Sacramento to the Pacific Northwest.

It didn't take long for the "Parks and Rec" team to retweet the sentiment and ask for the removal of Leslie Knope's image.

"And I also support the right of you and the right of everyone here to be able to go to school and be safe", Rubio continued.

Even Ron Swanson thinks this is the woooooooorst. Adam Scott, who played Poehler's love interest and eventual husband Ben Wyatt, told the NRA to "stay the f-- away from Leslie Knope".

As of Thursday, the NRA had not removed the message. Following up, fellow survivor Emma Gonzalez directly addressed Loesch on the NRA's stance on banning the purchase of semi-automatic and fully automatic weapons, making it a tough night overall for the organization.

As an outspoken liberal voice on Twitter (@kentremendous), Schur was upset by the NRA's tweet, and requested the account remove it.
