5. Brazilian lawmakers push law recognizing right to own guns for self-defense
Brazilian lawmakers are gearing up to push gun reforms that will recognize citizens’ right to own guns for self-defense.
The goal of peeling back gun control took center stage when it became evident that Jair Bolsonaro would win Brazil’s presidential election. Bolsonaro, a former Army Captain who ran as a law and order candidate, is now president-elect.
On October 19, Bloomberg quoted Bolsonaro defending his support of private firearm ownership, saying, “Why have I always defended the ownership of firearms? It’s so that you, upstanding citizens, with a few requirements, can have a weapon inside your house or your farm. If some guy breaks down the door to your house, knocks down the gate of your farm, you have the right to react.”

The populist rhetoric of Hungary’s right-wing prime minister, Viktor Orban, has exposed his government to criticism that it is stoking racism — including against Jews.
Hungary’s government earmarked $3.4 million for combating anti-Semitism in Europe.
Half of the money will become available for government-led initiatives in the 2019 national budget, followed by a second allocation in the following one, according to a statement Wednesday by the Association of United Hungarian Jewish Congregation, or EMIH, which is working with the government on these projects.
7. Italy: Around 2,000 migrants expected to leave every month under tougher rules
Around 2,000 migrants are expected to leave Italy per month as humanitarian residency permits expire, following the passage of the migration and security decree drafted by populist Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.
The new migrant and security decree, which is set to come into effect in January 2019, scraps the humanitarian residency permit. Those currently living in Italy with the humanitarian permits will not be able to renew them and face deportation instead, Il Giornale reports.
The law will also affect those currently in the waiting process for the residency permit as they will find themselves labelled as illegal migrants and will be given two weeks’ notice to leave the country.

9. Belgian govt’s right-wing coalition partner will not back UN Migration Pact
BRUSSELS (AP) — Belgium’s centre-right coalition government is fighting for its survival after the largest partner party said it would not back a global U.N.-backed migration pact.
Prime Minister Charles Michel said at United Nations headquarters in September that he would go to Marrakech, Morocco, next week to sign the document, but over the past week the right-wing N-VA party has said it will not back a government that supports the document.
The government parties said late Monday they would continue looking for a compromise but options were slimming down. Parliamentarians will be assessing comments from experts early Tuesday before negotiations continue.
Several EU nations have already pulled out of signing the nonbinding accord seeking to make global migration smoother.
