Have a look at

Then create a module, for instance myParser, that defines the common paser, and in each of your scripts import that module and use the parser.

*Untested code*

import argparse
parser = argparse.ArgumentParser(description='Process some integers.')
#then define the parser

then in a script:

import myParser

if __name__ == '__main__':
    args = myParser.parser.parse_args()
    # and so on...
