The Batman Batsuit origin from comics:
Batman using the gun that killed his parents for his Batsuit actually does come from the comics, as Detective Comics #1000 saw Batman melt down Joe Chill’s gun and use it as chest protection.
Here are a couple of panels and the dialogue from the comics:
“It’s not going into the trophy collection, Alfred. This gun was never fired at me, but it still scarred me for my life. I grew up broken and sad after this hunk of metal took everything from me. And who knows how many other lives it’s ruined? Or ended. But after tonight, it’s never going to hurt anyone again. I’m going to make that metal pay for its sins. I’m going to burn the metal that killed my parents. And forge it into something useful. So the metal that broke my heart as a child? That same metal will protect my heart as a man. And That is justice.”
