I have a question...

I have a question regarding the N-400 form.

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

There is a question about "bearing arms". My answer is "No" for religious reason. What should I answer to "are you willing to take the full Oath"? I guess the answer is "No", because they would have to give me a modified oath, is that correct?

Yes, that is correct to both. You will need to provide evidence that you have been a member of a religion (probably for longer than a few months) and that this religion has an issue with bearing arms. Here is the official link:

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
