Having a guns-allowed zone around the church did not prevent the killer from attacking it.
No but having a guns-allowed zone around the church almost certainly DID PREVENT the killer from attacking the people in and around the church MORE than he did.
VIDEO: ‘My God Protected Me,’ Says Man Who Shot Texas Church Killer

The Sutherland Springs man who came face-to-face with a madman who killed 26 people in a Texas church says God protected him and gave him the skills he needed to stop more deaths. The former NRA instructor engaged Devin Patrick Kelley as he exited the church. . . . .
. . . “I just wish I could have gotten there faster,” Willeford said in an emotional interview. . . .
. . . . “I kept hearing the shots, one after another, very rapid shots – just ‘pop pop pop pop’ and I knew every one of those shots represented someone, that it was aimed at someone, that they weren’t just random shots,” Willeford explained. “He saw me and I saw him.”
He said he took cover and did what he had to do.
Texas officials reported in a press conference Monday night that Devin Patrick Kelley, the killer of 26 in the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, was struck by Willeford’s gun fire two times–once in the torso and once in the leg.” He then dropped his rifle, got in his car, and fled the scene before he could shoot any other people who were outside the church. . . .
