Guns don't kill people, people may've seen Batman's guns do so way back in the Early Days but for even longer it has been a respectable defining characteristic that he avoids them.

> ...Batman wielding a shotgun? He HATES guns. Way out of character.
Agreed. On a whim, Googled "Batman holds gun" and got these images. Maybe someone more versed in Batcanon can cite which ones are NOT from stories about the prime universe -at the time- Batman?

Batman (1940-2011) #15

World's Finest #195

Not quite?

And this approptiate page where he does NOT:

I miss Dad & Dan.

A majority of these happened in the Pre-Crisis days with a few of them happening in the Post Crisis/New Earth continuity. And I don't care what anyone says; Batman holding a gun and using it for ANY reason is out of character. Period.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
