    1) Here is the picture! There's a boy holding a gun aimed at a bad guy. The bad guy says:

    So some freckle-faced boy thinks he can take me? I used to eat twerps like you for breakfast in 'Nam. I'll bet you don't even know how to use that cannon.

    I can't choose among: to arrest me, to tackle with me, or to fight against me. Anyway, I would like to know a second opinion.

    He thinks he can take me = He thinks he can [either] arrest or kill me.

    "Take" could simply mean arrest someone; or it could be an abbreviated "take me on" = confront me and possibly kill me.
