Probably short for 'Gatling'.

Bingo! The cookie goes to Oniya. Hit it on the head.

1900-1905 American slang. Still in use today.

How is Gatling racist slang?

Bah, it doesn't matter anyway, Johny's awesomeness is untouchable.

An obvious play on gat which is slang for gun.

1900-1905 American slang. Still in use today.

Nothing about racist.

No, I mean how is Johny Gatt's name an 'obvious' play on some 50's slang word. Makes no sense at all. I assumed you meant it was something to do with the war, hence the racist part.

His name is Gatt drop one T and you get Gat which is just a slang term for a gun that predates the Roaring Twenties in America.
