Assassination Attempt Made Against Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.


On Saturday, September 16 in in Los Angeles, the concerns of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s presidential campaign turned into a reality when an armed individual impersonating a federal marshal appeared at one of his events.

The man was identified as 44-year-old Adrian Paul Aispuro and is being held in Los Angeles on $35,000 bail for a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon.

Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., has been asking the federal government for Secret Service protection due to persistent threats to his safety however, those requests have been denied.

This incident highlights why it is so important that candidates receive the necessary security they need when running for office – especially considering the fact that this individual had two shoulder holsters with loaded pistols and spare ammunition magazines along with claiming to be a part of Kennedy’s security detail and wearing a U.S Marshal badge on a lanyard as well as beltclip federal ID.

Thankfully, alert protectors from Gavin de Becker and Associates (GDBA) spotted and detained this man until LAPD arrived on the scene to make an arrest.

In response, Kennedy stated: “I’m very grateful that alert and fast-acting protectors from Gavin de Becker and Associates (GDBA) spotted and detained an armed man who attempted to approach me at my Hispanic Heritage speech at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles tonight.”

He also expressed gratitude towards LAPD “for its rapid response.” As for future protection measures taken by his campaign he said: “I’m still entertaining a hope that President Biden will allow me Secret Service protection,” noting that he is “the first presidential candidate in history to whom the White House has denied a request for protection.”
