A man once tried to assassinate Andrew Jackson with two different pistols and failed both times.

On January 30th, 1835, Richard Lawrence attempted to shoot President Jackson while he was attending a funeral.

His weapons misfired one after the other, and Jackson had to be held back from trying to beat him with his cane.
