A disturbing video has been making the rounds on social media called the #NoLackChallenge.The video shows an unidentified man pointing a gun at people and waiting to see if they respond by pointing their gun back at him. People pull handguns and assault rifles and laugh the whole thing off. The video is surprising also because it shows racial diversity. In one scene at a Chinese restaurant, a worker behind the counter shows that they are not lacking a gun in response to the challenge. The video was shot in the Memphis, Tennesee, area and shows that there are many in the city who apparently love their guns.

The video can be viewed below:
