And that's something ripped straight from the comics. In the comics, due to his stealth and overall evasiveness, Batman has rarely if ever been shot or stabbed.
Batman's suit has some bulletproof qualities and some armoring, but even still, he isn't gonna survive **** ton of gunfire.
Maybe a single carefully aimed shot. At most.
