Batman's Hour Of The Gun!

Just another day in Gotham City...

So Batman's solution is:


Ah, but it turns out that...

To Commissioner Gordon, a code against killing or guns is just a "personal prejudice." Why don't you tell us how you really feel?

Dude just straight up called Batman an idiot.

Yes, in the old day, when the Joker was murdering people right and left, or Joe Chill was killing folks in Crime Alley, that was "honor...and style!" That's why you needed Batman to clean up your city, you trigger-happy, judgmental putz! Maybe you'd prefer the Punisher in your city, James?

But the real lesson from today is: GCPD carries around a machine gun, loaded with blanks, named Betsy, just to humor Batman.

From Brave And The Bold #104 (1972)

I thought Gordon believed in the law, but is he really asking a private citizen, a vigilante, to start shooting people?

That seems wrong.

Yeah, that's the Haneyverse; it has nothing to do with the DCU.
