Shur also shared a message from Poehler.
“Also, Amy isn’t on twitter, but she texted me a message: ‘Can you tweet the NRA for me and tell them I said (expletive) off?'”
Other actors on the show joined in, including Nick Offerman, who played Ron Swanson on the show.
"Our good-hearted show and especially our Leslie Knope represent the opposite of your pro-slaughter agenda - take it down," Offerman tweeted along with an explicit remark.
Adam Scott, who played Ben Wyatt, and Aubrey Plaza, who played April Ludgate, also responded on Twitter.
"Hey NRA please stay the (expletive) away form Lesilie Knope," Scott tweeted.
Plaza responded to Offerman’s tweet with a GIF of her character from the series.
While Poehler's Leslie Knope largely remained accepting of several different political ideologies, it was no secret that Pohler leaned toward the Democratic Party at the time of the 2016 presidential election.
