Philippine tax collector guns for higher revenues

In this Feb. 9, 2014 photo, Bureau of Internal Revenue Commissioner Kim Henares fires her pistol during target practice in a firing range at suburban Mandaluyong city, east of Manila, Philippines. The 53-year-old straight-talking chief has shifted her agency into “law enforcement mode” with an aggressive anti-tax evasion campaign to catch cheats and raise collections. Henares is a lawyer and accountant whose hobbies include weekly trips to the firing range where she shoots off automatic pistols and assault rifles. Shooting has become one of her favorite pastimes since she was appointed in July 2010 by President Benigno Aquino III, a gun aficionado who introduced her to the sport. (AP Photo/Bullit Marquez)
