Shapefile Convert Point ZM to Point

I have a group of shapefiles that contain point data.  The company that provided me with these shapefiles creates Point ZM files. The company can't provide them in another format.   Note that there are no Z or M components to the data, only X/Y coordinates are needed to properly reference the locations.  The program that I am using these shapefiles is a precision-agriculture mapping program (not ESRI based) that does not recognize Point ZM files.

I have found alternate and more manual ways to get this done (i.e. converting point ZM files to a text file and then import back to shapefile).  However, I am looking for a better method to remove the ZM component.

Does someone have a Python script that can do this?  Thanks in advance.
