While reading this list of US Presidential assassination attempts I realized I have a new favorite president. The description of the attempt on Andrew Jackson:

At the Capitol Building, a house painter named Richard Lawrence aimed two flintlock pistols at the President, but both misfired, one of them while Lawrence stood within 13 feet (4 m) of Jackson and the other at point-blank range.[11] After firing the two pistols, Lawrence was apprehended after Jackson beat him with his cane.
