Lying to the government is a form a Patriotism if the government is out to deprive you of fundamental rights.
lie. Defy. Do not comply.
And when they eventually come to search your house/arrest you anyway, are you ready to do your real patriotic duty? Lying is a great temporary measure, but make no mistake...it's not going to stop their efforts to take your guns. The worst is going to happen.
