Smoking Gun

If someone finds a Smoking Gun, they have found incontrovertible evidence.  Most often, this is used to prove that a hypothesis is true.

The phrase comes from the thought that if a suspect in a recent shooting was found with a smoking gun, one that was recently fired, it would be extremely strong evidence that the suspect was guilty.

Come back next week when there will be another series of idioms!
