It's a short article so I will post the entire thing:
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence filed complaints with the Federal Election Commission on Wednesday, Nov. 1, asking the FEC to investigate whether the National Rifle Association and Gun Owners of America are in violation of Federal Election Commission regulations and Federal Election Campaign Laws.

The complaint about the National Rifle Association asks the FEC to determine whether the NRA has engaged in prohibited activities, including electioneering on behalf of federal candidates, by expressly advocating the election or defeat of federal candidates in communications to the general public, beyond its membership, through its Web activities.
They also filed a one against Gun Owners of America

You don't have to wonder why some people called it in Incumbent protection act.

As yet unconfirmed report says that after the Brady press release the Second Amendment Foundation checked out the Brady's website saw similar information so they have asked the FEC to look at Brady's website(s).

Blame Congress

Don't blame the Brady Bunch, unless it's obvious that the NRA's website does not advocate how to vote as to particular candidates. If it does, and that's against the new unconstitutional pre-election gag law that the Supreme Court wrongly upheld, don't blame the Brady Bunch. Who can blame them for using the tools handed to them by Congress and approved for their use by the U.S. Supreme Court?

And since blaming Congress and SCOTUS isn't going to help the NRA at this point, the best we can do is carefully review the Brady Campaign's website and other gun-grabbing websites to make sure that they are not violating the incumbent protection pre-election gag order.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
