Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said the incident was over within six seconds thanks to the quick response of the security team members. Recent changes in Texas law allow licensed gun owners to carry firearms into houses of worship.

Flashback: Biden Called Texas Governor ‘Irrational’ for Allowing Guns in Places of Worship
By Townhall. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden criticized the Governor of Texas for signing a bill that allows law-abiding Texans to defend themselves with firearms in places of worship. On Sunday, an armed man stopped a gunman in Texas after the gunman opened fire during church services. . .
Joe Biden recently told reporters that it was “irrational” to allow law-abiding worshipers to defend themselves in church.
“With all due respect to the governor of Texas,” Biden began, “it is irrational what they’re doing. On the very day you see a mass shooting … and we’re talking about loosening access to have guns, to be able to take them into places of worship … I mean it’s just absolutely irrational. It’s totally irrational.”
