Unfortunately all that the DA can do is a bit of civil disobediance and nullify the laws by not enforcing them, only the Court can deem a law as unconstitutional.

It would be interesting and good to see Wisconsin go from a state that denies concealed carry to being a constitutional carry state. That would be a first ever. I also think knives, pepper spray, tasers, and brass knuckles are also included in "arms". It shouldnt just be constrained to firearms.
