I suspect it's more about media/social media/zeitgeist than about actual differences, but that said, I personally find "terrorist bombing in which a lot of people died" both more tragic and scarier than "someone shot the president." (I mean, in general, not even taking into account that I was not alive in 1963 and was an adult in 2001.)

Particularly the media aspects; I think the sheer volume of live TV coverage made a huge difference. (Happening in one of the world's media capitals will do that.)
