But Gordon didn't draft or pass that legislation. Sure, he doesn't oppose it, but he's hardly responsible for it. He's not a politician. All he and Batman did was give the city hope. And heck, they had to make sacrifices in order to do so, taking the burden on themselves.
So what does Blake hate about supplying Gotham with a martyr? Vigilante justice is cool, beating criminals to a pulp and possibly being responsible for the death of Harvey Dent, not a problem... but covering up Harvey's murders to give the city hope? An outrage!
