    No, nothing in the universe can stop a gamma ray burst. They are the most powerful explosions in the universe.

    Remove a lot mass from the host star until it’s mass isn’t sufficient for a core collapse. Wolf-Rayet stars, (extremely bright, massive, and hot stars), are stars who shed their mass throughout their life because they are so hot, (which is due to their high mass). I hypothesize that these types of stars may initially be gamma ray burst stars because they are so massive, yet may shed their mass until they can no longer go supernova.

    No,

    we struggle just to prevent the burst of a WMD. Two have already been used in war crimes against Japan. So what makes you think we could ever prevent something on the scale of a GRB?

    At the moment, no, we can not. 

    For now, they remain unpreventable.

    "the gamma ray burst" implies a specific one.  Since astronomers can't predict them and there are no stars in our vicinity that would produce one, which one are you concerned about.

    No, we cannot.

    no, given that it occurs many light years away.
