Number Seven: Andrew Jackson. The first recorded assassination attempt was on Andrew Jackson by a gunman wielding two pistols. When the gunman fired the first pistol, it misfired, and the second pistol also misfired. The pistols were later tested and worked fine, meaning Jackson was incredibly lucky.
