The app is not code signed properly so when using Python 2.7.9 on OS X 10.10 or any version or OS X I imagine when a user enables the built in OS X firewall and runs Python it complains about allowing the app thru the firewall. The only way to fix since it wasn't signed properly was to install command line tools then typing this in terminal:

sudo codesign -f -s - /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Resources/

please sign this app properly so it works without this annoying workaround. Thanks ;)

Using code signing on OS X sounds like a good idea but does require careful analysis to ensure it is being used correctly.  However, in your example, you are using and signing the Apple-supplied system Python.  It is not advisable to modify system resources like that.  You should open an issue with Apple to request the system Pythons be signed (  I'll keep this issue open for further investigation of signing of Pythons supplied by installers for OS X.

Thanks to the additional requirements of Gatekeeper in macOS 10.15 Catalina, the binaries included in current installers for macOS are now codesigned as of 3.8.2, 3.7.7, and 2.7.18.
