The Uruguayan Foreign Ministry, meanwhile, warned its US travelers to avoid taking children to crowded places like theme parks and sporting events amid "the indiscriminate possession of firearms by the population", but that comes just a week after the Trump administration issues a travel warning to Uruguay, according to the report.

"Given the impossibility of the authorities to prevent these situations, due among other factors, to the indiscriminate possession of firearms by the population...avoid places where large concentrations of people occur, such as theme parks, shopping centers, arts festivals, religious activities, food fairs, and cultural or sporting events... it is recommended not to take minors to these places".

It suggests using increased caution when visiting bars, nightclubs, and casinos.

Two mass shootings on the weekend, less than 24 hours apart, in Texas and OH left 31 people dead and dozens more injured.

Venezuela and Uruguay issued travel warnings of their own to their citizens following the mass shootings. Another one followed in Dayton, Ohio killing nine people with 27 injured.

Amnesty International said the advisory is a mirror that to those issued by the Department of State to USA travelers for other countries. The police killed the shooter at the scene.

The recent shooting in El Paso and Dayton marked the 30th and 31st shootings since those incidents. US President Donald Trump on Wednesday visited the victims of the 13-hour massacre.

He returned wearing protective ear muffs, safety glasses and wielding a high-powered assault-style rifle, according to video surveillance of him inside the store.

Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Monday urged the U.S. to "control the indiscriminate sale of weapons" after eight Mexicans were shot dead in the El Paso shooting.

He added: "Once again, it is chillingly clear that the United States government is unwilling to ensure protection against gun violence". With four more months left in 2019, some kind of reform needs to happen to move us in the right direction.

As reported in our original piece, Uruguay issued a travel warning on Monday to its citizens traveling to the USA citing "growing indiscriminate violence, mostly for hate crimes" and the "the indiscriminate possession of firearms by the population". Economists pointed to a strong U.S. dollar, weakening global economy, trade tensions and "uncertainty surrounding the Trump administration" as sources of the decline.
