Yes, you can, although it's not quite a "lock".  Behind the columns is a set of status, and moving from one column to another is effectively done by "transitions" in the workflow.  You can easily edit the transitions, adding "conditions" to them which will stop people using them.  In effect, blocking the move across columns.
