    I can. I don't know if you have the skills required.

    Yes, it's possible to do that. Yes, it may even be lawful, as self-defense is not a crime. The exact liability (if any) for your actions may depend upon the applicable laws, the facts, and other circumstances of your scenario.

    You could try. They likelihood of you actually doing it is pretty minimal.

    If you could legitimately claim self-defense or in defense of someone else. However it may be a tough sell.

    You would have to be justified in the use of deadly force.  You may use the amount of force necessary to stop a threat, if severing someone's spinal cord is what is necessary for you to stop someone from sticking a knife in you, then it would be justified.  If you have the ability to use a less lethal method of stopping a threat, then that is what is expected.

    I have no idea but that sounds extremely painful.
