ANALYSIS

CLAIM: Rifles killed 297 people in the U.S. in 2022, while constipation killed 2,167.

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. This statistic uses FBI data from 2018 for the first figure and cumulative Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data from a period of 15 years for the second. Neither agency has released data for 2022 on the number of people killed in the U.S. by either cause, but 2020 figures show at least 455 were murdered by rifle that year while deaths due to constipation were less than half of that.
