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.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I think most of that occurred before the silver age. So you can just cheat and say that was golden age Earth-2 Batman.

Silver Age Batman and on presumably didn't like guns. At least that's the lie I tell myself. I think eventually writers realized that a guy whose parents were murdered by gunfire and dedicates himself to risking his life stopping crime every night probably just doesn't like guns.

Of course I wonder what happens when Bruce's rich friends want to take him hunting.
