I would answer it with complete honesty.......regardless of anyone else's answer.

I want to answer No but I do not know if its going to affect my citizenship. I need some honest response that how did you handle this if you answered No

The N-400 form includes the instruction on that matter: if your answer is "NO", you must include a letter explaining the decision and evidence on it.

Your reasons should be based on religious training and belief or deeply held moral or ethical code and you may provide an attestation or witness statement.

 

This also applies for requests to modify the oath of allegiance.

It doesn’t matter how I answered it, or how anyone else answers it. Answer truthfully for your situation. Saying “no” is possible provided you can back it up with evidence that this is a deeply held religious or personal belief. 
 

Never assume they are looking for a certain answer on a form. Always answer truthfully.

OP - your going to need to tell us why do not want to bare arms if you want assistance.  If it’s against your religion, maybe you have a disability...we have no idea. 
 

This is like someone asking what happens if they tick yes to being arrested and giving no info.  It depends on the context what happens next.

@Nonny30,

 

You should answer truthfully. If you should never answer because you think it is something they want to hear. Whether your answer is Yes or NO, you should be able to stand by your convictions. And if asked you should be truthful on how you feel.

 

A great example of standing by your convictions is the story of Private Desmond Doss. He service the military during a war and was awarded medals for his participation in saving lives without ever firing a weapon because of his religious beliefs against killing another human.

I think the key is "If the law requires it...."
