Sure you can. You can create a TAR archive :)
Serisouly now, no I don't think you can archive with gpg. I think that
gpg uses gzip, which doesn't do archives. If you encrypted archives you'd
use gpg combined with tar in exactly the same way that people use tar
combined with gzip to make compressed archives.
