Simple transistor question

The answer is yes. :) It all depends on the value of the resistors.

In this circuit, it dosen't do much. Rc limits the collector current of Q1
when it is on, and the base current into Q2, when Q1 is off.
Beware though, As designed, Q2 is not guaranteed to be off, when Q1 is on.
If the C-E voltage is high enough on Q1, Q2 will get some base current, and
off you go.
A series diode in place of that second resistor, with a resistor from Q2
base to ground, would fix that.
