On permits

Someone please tell me how having a permit would have prevented this:
David Truesdale, 19 of Batavia, was released from the Genesee County Jail Wednesday evening after posting bond. He is facing misdemeanor gun charges after his 6 year old brother, a Batavia elementary student, brought a loaded hand gun on the school bus. The boy's father, 40 year old Juan Claudio is facing similar felony charges. "Neither one had a permit to have that weapon," said Batavia Police officer John Zola.
I have to point out that the owner of the gun was quickly found despite not having a permit.

So tell me then, how would a permit have helped at all in this situation? If both men had been vetted by law enforcement, and received a permit, would the child not have brought the gun on the school bus?

I highly doubt it. I just wanted to point out the uselessness of permits in general.
