Just what does the expression 'smoking gun' mean anyway? I've often come across it, but it's an expression, so dictionaries cant tell me what it means.
Its in fashion now because Bush uses it a lot. Its a murder investigation reference. Finding a "smoking gun" is finding a hard piece of key evidence. THE evidence needed to prove something conclusively.
