Following the rising incidence of gun violence in the United States, Amnesty International has issued a travel warning calling for prospective travelers and visitors to that country to exercise extreme caution. 

The group called for caution on intending travelers saying that the U.S does not adequately protect people’s right to safety regardless of who they might be.

“Travelers to the United States should remain cautious that the country does not adequately protect people’s right to be safe, regardless of who they might be. People in the United States cannot reasonably expect to be free from harm – a guarantee of not being shot is impossible.

“Once again, it is chillingly clear that the U.S. government is unwilling to ensure protection against gun violence,” campaign manager for the End Gun Violence Campaign at Amnesty International USA, Ernest Coverson said.

The Amnesty travel advisory addressed growing gun violence, mostly hate crimes, including racism and discrimination, highlighting that the traveler’s race, country of origin, ethnic background, sexual orientation or gender identity may place them at higher risk after recent attacks linked to white supremacist ideology. 

The action called attention to the extent to which all aspects of life in the United States have been compromised in some way by unfettered access to guns, without comprehensive and uniform regulation of their acquisition and use.

“By prioritizing gun ownership over basic human rights, the U.S. government is willfully and systematically failing on multiple levels and ignoring its international obligations to protect people’s rights and safety.

 “Amnesty International has been calling for common sense reform regarding the use and possession of firearms, including comprehensive background checks, national regulations for registering and licensing firearms, required training, a ban on high capacity magazines/assault weapons, and mandatory safe-storage laws.
