Every time I try to open a .py file from the Finder (macOS Sierra), IDLE opens up and then immediately "unexpectedly quits." I can open them from within IDLE without the same problem

I've attached Apple's crash report. Additionally, in the Console I get an error message like "IDLE[14872]: objc[14872]: Invalid or prematurely-freed autorelease pool 0x7f81bf959048." every time the crash happens 

I am using Python 2.7.12; I installed the correct version of tcltk (something that is frequently mentioned when I search online for this problem) so that isn't the issue.
