Correction: Apple never shipped Python 3, so there is no longer any version of Python shipped with OS X. Your easy button here is to install Python 2 using the installer package here:

https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2718/ <https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2718/>

Caveats about Python 2 being unmaintained, less secure, etc apply, and migrating to Python 3 is probably a good idea. You can also find a binary installer for Python 3 at python.org <http://python.org/>. Apple ships a lobotomized Python 3 with its developer tools, but don't rely on it for general usage.
