The state Senate passed Assembly Bill 293 by a voice vote, sending a bill to Democrat Gov. Tony Evers’ office. Evers, who has opposed similar legislation, will likely bow to pressure from top Democrats and not sign the measure amid a federal push to enact more gun control restrictions.

from OP's cite, quote:
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau

This bill requires a manufacturer of firearms in this state to include a stamp
on the firearm that reads “Made in Wisconsin" or a similar stamp. This requirement
applies only to firearms manufactured after the effective date of the bill.
Under this bill, a firearm, accessory, or ammunition that is owned or
manufactured in this state and that does not leave this state is not subject to federal
regulation under the interstate commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution.

Even when Texas passed a Silencer Sanctuary bill, everyone who knows controlling federal law warned people to not be the test case.
