How do I iterate through every record of one table to create record in another table?

I want to run an insert  statement for every user in the users table.  The new data will be inserted into the PERMISSIONS table.  


INSERT into permissions SET permission_user = *user ID from users table*, SET permission_grant_on = "team", SET permission_item = -1, SET permission_value = -1
