Following the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio over the weekend that left 31 people dead and more than 50 inured in less than 24 hours, the governments of Uruguay and Venezuela are urging their citizens to postpone travel or take extra safety precautions if visiting the U.S. Uruguay’s Foreign Ministry says U.S. authorities can’t prevent the shootings because of “indiscriminate possession of firearms,” while Venezuela’s Foreign Ministry points to “violence and indiscriminate hate crimes” in the U.S.
President Trump will reportedly visit El Paso, Texas tomorrow and there are indications he might also visit Dayton. Yesterday, Trump called for bipartisan solutions to the bloodshed, labelling the shootings in El Paso and Dayton as barbaric crimes against all humanity. He blamed mental illness and video games but made no mention of more limits on the firearms that can be sold.
