Killerbee channels lightning into his swords...big deal, he can still be hurt by the sand coffin, it's not like Killerbee emits lightning all around his body like raikage. Killerbee can't block 50 tons of sand falling on him with his lightning blade... If it was raikage he would probably go through that sand coz of his lightning armor but Killerbee doesn't have that.
And Gara can block a menacing ball (probably), for one thing the menacing ball was blocked by Suigetsu who is weaker than Gara and Gara blocked the explosion that would have destroyed his entire village.
To be fair, the location of the fight is important factor, and if Killerbee has samehada, that sword could suck the chakra out of Gara's sand attacks.
