Most Successful Congress Ever?

Over at Reason, David Harsanyi argues that the current Congress, as unpopular as it is in opinion polls, has been remarkably successful at blocking the sort of freedom-eroding laws that ruin a country by degrees.

Gun owners feel this keenly, since very nearly every law passed by government concerning guns is an erosion of freedom. There has been pushback against this erosion in recent decades thanks to the efforts of the NRA and other gun owner organizations, but the default position of government is to disarm its citizens, because you can't force your will upon free men if you have to worry about them shooting you in retaliation.
