I think they're using Batman because without him sales will suck. Big-time suck.
The statement that Batman was often seen using guns in the Golden and Silver Ages is an error. Very early on he used guns in a couple of stories, was depicted wearing one on the cover of Detective Comics #33, and used machine guns mounted on his batplane to kill Hugo Strange's monsters in Batman #1. After this the convention became that he doesn't use guns, although I don't know I've seen a story stressing this. When Julie Schwartz took over he and his collaborators didn't know this was the tradition, so they had him use a gun in one of their first stories. Negative reader reaction taught them it was a mistake.
