24 Andrew Jackson Badass Fact #5 In 1835, a would-be assassin pulled a pistol on Andrew Jackson as he was walking through the Capitol. He pointed it at Jackson and pulled the trigger at point-blank range, but nothing happened. Jackson's aides were stunned -- it was the first assassination attempt on a US President in history. The man, Richard Lawrence, then pulled another pistol and attempted to shoot, but Andrew Jackson, ever the badass, pulled out his cane and beat him down. Today, Andrew Jackson remains the only President man enough to have beat up his own assassin. In 1835, a would-be assassin pulled a pistol on Andrew Jackson as he was walking through the Capitol.

34 . “Such grants [of money by the federal government] have always been [passed] under the control of the general principle that the works which might be thus aided should be "of a general, not local, national, not State," character. A disregard of this distinction would of necessity lead to the subversion of the federal system.... I am not able to view [the Maysville Road Bill] in any other light than as a measure of purely local character.... It has no connection with any established system of improvements; [and] is exclusively within the limits of a State [Kentucky].... Source: Jackson’s Veto of the “Maysville Road Bill” (1830)
