1) I can understand the first one and do we really know how thorough it is?
2) You then get the permit-to-purchase and now go through another second background check during the 4473 process. …..

You're right, it doesn't sound right …..
The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension site states the following regarding the permit to purchase:

The law enforcement agency will conduct a series of background-related checks to assure you meet eligibility requirements established in state law.

Once those checks are complete, a one-year permit to purchase a handgun in Minnesota will be issued. If you are applying for a permit to transfer the law enforcement agency must notify you of its status within seven days of receipt.
I believe it's the Minneapolis PD that does the background check. I can only assume that they're doing a thorough job, especially in the wake of the riots that happened here. Surely they can't be handing out permits to every Tom, Dick and Harry who may not be eligible.
