Why are Marine warrant officers called gunners?

NOTE 1
A Chief Warrant Officer, CWO2-CWO5, serving in the MOS 0306 "Infantry Weapons Officer" is designated as a special rank: "Marine Gunner". A Marine Gunner replaces the Chief Warrant Officer insignia on the LEFT collar with a bursting bomb insignia. Other Warrant Officers are sometimes informally also referred to as "Gunner" but this usage is not correct.

Its actually used incorectly. The only true "gunners" are cwo-5 with a bursting bomb sybolizing ordancence. Well its something like that.
